The Guardian is reporting that although Didier Drogba is staying put at Stamford Bridge, for now , he may consider a reunion with his idol and spiritual leader Jose Mourinho when he takes on his next managerial job.
Mourinho’s departure was met with a tear-stained fairwell from the Ivory Coast international, who fell to his knees and wept like a toddler when Jose left. But the tears have now turned to anger, and he is joined by fellow teammates in bellowing for the good times that have left Chelsea so suddenly.
Surely a sign of how low Chelsea have slumped are the quotes coming from John Terry after their glorious win over Hull City:
“It was a great win and certainly well needed as we hadn’t won in four games. Hull is a tough place to come but we played well and scored goals which we had not been doing. We knew they would get in our faces for the first 15 minutes but we matched them and then our football did the talking.”
Despite this huge victory over mighty Hull City The Guardian’s David Hytner reports that:
“Drogba is receptive to the idea of playing under Mourinho again and were the Portuguese to take another job before the end of January and the closure of the winter transfer window, Drogba could have a decision to make. But he will not quit Chelsea lightly or on a whim.”
The journo then tells us that Drogba could be tempted by another European culture, Hytner continues:
“Having sampled those of France and England, he would be tempted by Italy or Spain, where Real Madrid would like to sign him, despite voicing concern about his age. ‘Totally independent of his situation with Chelsea, you have to accept that he’s 29 turning 30 and that needs to be taken into consideration for us,’ said Predrag Mijatovic, Real’s sporting director.”
So Real it is then…
